Concordia Seminary will offer a Prepare/Enrich Workshop and Training on Saturday, March 12, to be held on the Seminary campus. The workshop will begin at 8:30 a.m. and conclude at 4:30 p.m.
This workshop is designed to help facilitators learn how to use the Prepare/Enrich program with premarital and married couples. Prepare/Enrich is a program based on a set of five inventories that examine major relationship issues a couple may experience. These inventories must be administered by a trained Prepare/Enrich counselor and include four to six feedback sessions in which the counselor facilitates discussion between the couple based on the inventory results. Takeaway materials include the Comprehensive Counselor Manual, five inventories for premarital and married couples at all stages of life, and a Building a Strong Marriage Workbook.
The workshop will be facilitated by Rev. Jeffery S. Schubert, executive pastor at Divine Redeemer Lutheran Church, Hartland, Wis. He previously served as executive director of district and congregational services at The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod’s International Center in St. Louis, Mo. He is a certified trainer in Prepare/Enrich and is recognized for his national and international leadership in marriage enrichment.
The fee for the Prepare/Enrich Workshop is $190 (or $175 for Concordia Seminary, St. Louis students). Pre-registration by Feb. 25 is required. Fee is nonrefundable after this date. Lunch is available in the Seminary Dining Hall.
A Prepare/Enrich workshop brochure is available. For more information, contact the office of continuing education and parish services at 314-505-7486 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also download a Registration Form.
